River Falls Depot Museum
Originally built in 1909, the River Falls Depot Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is the heart of River Falls's historic west side district. The museum houses many Central Railway artifacts, as well as an HO scale replica of what River Falls's west side looked like in the summer of 1955. On the other side of the diorama is a replica of a coal tipple with a model train loading up with coal.
The grounds surrounding the museum are considered a park area where the museum has a static display consisting of a 1913 Baldwin steam engine, a 1920's classic red caboose, a 1960's caboose, and two small track cars. This area also offers picnic tables and a number of benches for visitors. Please feel free to bring a sack lunch and stay a while!

Cedar Hill State Park
Visit Cedar Hill State Park for the day or weekend, only 35 miles from River Falls. Bring your family to hike, bike, picnic, camp, geocache and nature watch. The park sits on the shore of Joe Pool Lake, so you can also swim, fish, and boat or paddle. Rent one of our picnic pavilions for your next family reunion.
Camp at one of 350 developed campsites, all near restrooms with hot showers. All sites have water and electricity; 150 have sewer hookups, too. Several sites are ADA-accessible. Or hike to a primitive campsite, if trails are open.
Explore our trails on bike or on foot. The DORBA Trail, named for the volunteers of the Dallas Off Road Biking Association, crisscrosses 1,200 acres and is open to bikers and hikers. The trail is closed when wet, so call ahead to make sure it is open.
Swim in the lake! We have a gravel swimming beach (no lifeguard on duty) with picnic tables and grills nearby. A playground and restrooms are next to the beach. Read through our Swimming Safety Tips before you swim.
Fish the 7,500-acre Joe Pool Lake for largemouth black bass, crappie and catfish. We have two lighted fishing jetties and a perch pond for kids. We also have two four-lane boat ramps and lighted boat trailer parking. You do not need a fishing license to fish from shore or pier in a state park.
